This MCEdit filter converts text you write into blocky words in the Minecraft world.

Recently added: Proportional fonts, multiple font support, and some Minecraft blocks as a font.

To install:

1. Copy the .py file into your MCEdit filters directory

2. Move the font folder into your MCEdit filters directory

To use:

1. Add any new 5W 10H 2L .schematics you want to the font directory. The naming convention is .schematic

2. Select a region in MCEdit

3. Enter your text in the Message field

4. Run the filter.

You can change the material with MCEdit's Replace tool.

A video tutorial is online here: VIDEO Reddit thread here for discussion

This album shows how to create the .schematic files for your own font.
Progress: 100% Complete
Game Version:Minecraft 1.4.7

MCEdit filters are pretty straight forward. There are heaps of source code examples on the Reddit Wiki page:

Yes. Screenshot your font, use my PNG to Blocks filter to build the characters in a flatworld using MCEdit, export the characters to the font directory, and you're done.

You may need to change the script 'SHAPE' parameter to suit the schematics you build.
